Pahoe vs Hurricane & Pegasus

Hi i have been riding a Hurricane the past few years and am wondering if the Pahoe or Pegasus are any faster . My main concern was digging in on larger bumps as the Hurricane tends to do . I know the Hurricane is fast and responsive but for a race such as Molikai what is the ideal boat out of these three considering the conditions Thanks

For the low, low price of only $20.00, I will come up with ten more ways to ask this EXACT SAME question. I can post them all right here, or start a new thread each time... your choice.

No i was more interested in how the Tiger Pahoe stacked up against these two. I know how the other two canoes paddle, and no that particular thread didnt answer my question . there has been heaps of discussion about Pegasus and Hurricane but how does the Pahoe go . Any help would be great. If you cant help dont reply

This is like asking someone "What food tastes the best spaghetti, steak, or chicken?"

Instead of looking at the food, look at the person eating it.

Personally I like a rare to medium rare steak seasoned only with hawaiian salt. Plus rice to suck up the juices. Jeah!

Poooopoooo

i myself have been partial to the pahoa, never tried the pahoe though...must be new.

jc9. I think you are right. I'd go with the pahoa. Who makes the pahoe? Sounds like its fast.

I was on a pahoehoe the other day - brah, that was hot.

but, I guess this goes to show there is a real need to centralize all canoe info... been meaning to set up a canoe/products database for a couple years now. Will try to do it over the holidays.

Now maybe someone can help the guy out. I guess I'll put my 2 cents... while the hurricane might dig in sometimes, there are still plenty of guys that can surf the thing in any conditions and that do amazingly well in the channel. So actually I got nothing to help you -- it all just depends on who's paddling and which boat you can paddle the best. If you are used to the hurricane I would stick with it. The boat doesn't matter that much as long as it's relatively competitive, which I think all those you listed are.

thank you keizo for helping...because like my paddling, this tread was going nowhere fast.

you are right again. I am surprised at the direction this thread went. Actually considering the people contributing to this thread I just I am not surprised at all

I had the chance finally today to paddle a Pegasus .It was moderate wind w/ 2-3 ft chop and all I can say is I traded in my hurricane . I also paddled it in flat water and it felt about the same as my hurricane and the GPS readings showed with the same effort the boat was moving almost exactly the same speed as my hurricane does in the same water over distance .

The Pegasus didn't bury its nose like the hurricane and riding the surf was much more controled w/ the Pegasus and it moved from wave to wave with ease when trying to line them up .........I'm impressed

The only thing I didn't like was the finish wasn't as nice as the hurricane ........I thought they came out of the same factory ??? I loved my hurricane but I really like this Pegasus and can't wait to get out into the surf to play again

Has anyone seen the fibreglass hurricanes ? We have a few up here and I can't tell the difference between the 2 and on the scales the fibreglass version was just over 1 lb heavier than the carbon version ......
